Welcome

Our church celebrates freedom of belief and
welcomes individuals and families of all backgrounds
and faiths. Unitarian Universalism does not advocate
a particular creed. We come together because of our
shared commitment to values and to ways of living,
not to religious dogma. See “What Is UU?” for more
about the long history and tradition of Unitarian
Universalism. The Strafford Universalist Society is
the second oldest in Vermont and fourth oldest in
the nation. Though the society was dormant for
several years in the 1980s and 1990s, we are now
growing again, meeting in the “new” church built in
1833 in South Strafford. We hope you will join us.

A 2017 UUSC story of hope highlighted the work of
Ursula Rakova, helping her fellow islanders on the
Carteret Islands of Papua New Guinea maintain
dignity and keep their culture alive, in the face of
re-location due to climate change. Throughout its
history, UUSC has advanced human rights and social
justice around the world, partnering with those who
confront unjust power structures and mobilizing to
challenge oppressive policies. Let us continue to be
inspired by this work and support efforts that create
lasting and powerful change.
